Application for substitute teacher

Substituting with Fairfield County ESC

Thank you for your interest in substituting with the Fairfield County ESC! The FCESC does substitute onboarding for all 8 districts located in the county. These districts include Amanda-Clearcreek, Berne Union, Bloom-Carroll, Fairfield Union, Lancaster City, Liberty Union-Thurston, Pickerington, and Walnut Township. 

Per state law to be a substitute teacher you must hold at least a bachelor’s (4-year) degree, to be a substitute aide you must hold at least a high school diploma. A substitute teacher supersedes a substitute aide, if you need to apply for a license/permit please apply for the one in which you are most eligible.

The deadline for application submissions is one week before the ESC Governing Board Meetings.

Once your application has been submitted and reviewed an email will be sent out letting you know how to access and accept job assignments.
